Viper Series – The Viper Series Sterilizers are a perfect chemical-free water disinfection solution for professional applications. UV Sterilization is versatile technology used for disinfecting water, other opaque liquids, hard surfaces and air. Using the same germicidal rays as the sun, but hundreds of times stronger, UV offers a reliable, cost effective, environmentally friendly alternative to chemicals and their resulting bi-products.
UV Sterilization is a purely physical process so it doesn’t alter water’s chemistry, taste, smell or pH.
The Viper Series UV are ideal for large commercial or residential ponds, aquariums, and water features. The specially designed lamps disinfect faster and have greater cell penetration capability. The compact body design has a small footprint making it easy to handle, install and maintain. Vipers are engineered to accommodate extreme flow rates. A provided flow switch shuts the unit off if flows fall below 95 GPM
Dimensions for 3" Unit: 17” x 5-1/4” x 24”
|Number of Lamps||
|220 Volt Amp Draw||
|Water Sterilization Measurements||
Freshwater: 28,800 – 60,000 Gallons
|Recommended Flow Rate for UV Dosages||
at 30,000 µw/cm2 (EOL) GPH: 35,000 (Max Flow Rate)
|Information for Reef Tanks||
A UV rated in the 30,000 or 45,000 µw/cm2 (EOL) is ideal for the reef environment. UV’s used at higher kill rates will destroy the planktonic food supply for the reef.
|Information for Marine Fish||
(No reef or live rock) A UV rated in the 75,000 or 90,000 µw/cm2 (EOL) will be the most effective at controlling fish disease. All UV dosages are calculated at the end of lamp life (14 months).
